Hi dear friends, it’s Lisa back on the blog to share this layout with you!
I wanted to scrap some pictures I had taken last year and still had laying around in my scrap room. I took the pictures in the snow, so I wanted a snowy layout
To start, I chose two cut files from Paige Evans I found in the Silhouette store (Christmas Village Border 281821 and Starflake 282821). I cut the scene out of white paper and backed it with different patterned papers from the Whimsical collection. For the stars, I cut them out of different patterned papers then I adhered them on another piece of paper and I hand-cut them out, leaving a border so that every star would have two colors.
I also used a pink glitter paper from my stash to back the parts of the houses covered in snow and to punch out a few little stars that I adhered to the middle of every star snowflake. When I had all of my pieces, I placed them on my white 12×12 white cardstock in a way I liked and looked balanced to me. I wanted the stars to peak out behind the clouds or cover some of them, so I hand-cut out some clouds and I stitched around them with white thread. I also placed them on my layout. When everything was how I wanted, I started adhering everything down using liquid glue for some items and foam squares for others, creating dimension.
I backed my three little pictures on some pieces of patterned paper and adhered them on the layout.
For my title, I looked for a cute snowflake quote on Pinterest. I found this one that says: “Snowflakes are kisses from heaven”. I wrote the word “kisses” on one of my favorite patterned papers from the Whimsical collection, cut it out, placed it on another piece of paper, and cut it out again. For the rest of the quote, I used the mini foam Thickers from the Whimsical collection.
To finish the layout, I stitched some French knots on the page to create tiny snowflakes. I also embellished some more, using rub-ons, stickers, and ephemera from the Wild Child collection.
Thank you so much for stopping by, see you next time!
